Format: Paperback
If you had to choose only one book on pottery, this is the one to put on your easy-to-reach shelf. I've had my well-thumbed volume for 16 years, since leaving my other bottomless source of information behind at college (my tutor). Not a book to find inspiration in (there are a 1001 glossy picture-books & magazines about for that), but an invaluable reference to get precise information from. Easy to use, loaded with photos, drawings, diagrams, graphs & tables on everything from A to Zirconium Silicate. If you're a serious pottery maker, professional or amateur, teacher or hobbyist, this is the only "must-have" for answers to your questions, queries & problems.

This is probably the bible for all ceramics students but make sure you get the latest edition (5th at the time of writing) it just gets better...

Format: Hardcover
Indispensible for all potters. Like most artists, potters and ceramicists work alone, so where do you go for help when you have a problem. This book can provide most solutions. Fascinating just to dip into, every time I do, it confirms my ignorance of the craft.
